The NCAA has slapped the University of Missouri men's basketball team with several penalties for violations going back to 2011.

The NCAA investigation found donors compensated several players and prospects with money, iPads and transportation through a summer internship program, among other infractions. 

Penalties include vacating all wins during the 2013-2014 season, the loss of two scholarships, and a ban for postseason play for the current season, which includes the SEC tournament. The team will also pay a $5,000 fine.

The violations came under former head coach Frank Haith and former athletic director Mike Alden.

Current head coach Kim Anderson said in a statement he is disappointed the actions of a few individuals have put the program in this situation and that they will come out of it stronger as a team and staff.

The team is currently 8-8.
